November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month
The American Cancer Society has deemed the month of November as Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month.
We have treated many patients with pancreas cancer and are dedicated to improving outcomes from this type of cancer through awareness and continued research. Please see our site for links to learn more about pancreas cancer. For those of you interested in learning more about pancreas cancer you may want to visit www.pancan.org which is the only national organization creating hope in a comprehensive way through research, patient support, community outreach and advocacy for a cure.
Purple is the color which represents pancreatic cancer awareness, and November is the month you may begin to see the purple bracelets around the clinics.
